Trivia

While shooting Peter O'Toole and I.S. Johar riding together on a single camel, David Lean saw that they had trouble staying on the animal. On closer inspection, a large block of hashish was discovered; both actors were completely stoned. Shooting was abandoned for the day.


Quotes

Colonel Brighton: He was the most extraordinary man I ever knew.
Vicar at St. Paul's: Did you know him well?
Colonel Brighton: I knew him.
Vicar at St. Paul's: Well nil nisi bonum. But did he really deserve a place here?


Goofs

Feisal gives Lawrence 50 men to take on Aqaba, but the group is never seen to have more than 30, even in long shots that show the entire group.


Crazy Credits

The opening credits read: Introducing Peter O'Toole as T.E. Lawrence. However, O'Toole had already played very noticeable roles in two feature-length films, the Disney 1960 version of Kidnapped (1960), and The Day They Robbed the Bank of England (1960).
